Kenneth Wayne Walls

Kenneth was born June 22, 1941, in Tulare, California. He moved into The INN Between on April 3, 2017 and was fortunate to have his devoted son, Donnie, caring for him in his final months. We didn’t have a bed for Donnie, so he would sleep in his car at night, returning during the day to care for his dad.

The “dynamic duo” was a great help to our residents, and they took the initiative to help with many maintenance projects at The INN Between. They spent much of their time driving other residents to appointments and errands. They also spent time visiting with their family and helping people however they could. Ken never stopped, and when we once talked about his need to slow down a bit to take care of himself he said, “The minute I stop, my life will too.”

Ken died in Salt Lake City on July 18, 2017. In true Ken fashion, he and Donnie were running errands around town when Ken began to struggle for breath. Donnie took him straight to the ER and Ken died in the hospital. His sudden loss was a shock, and we miss him dearly.

Ken is survived by his children, Tonya, Donnie Troy, Angela, Jonathan, Kendra and Christopher and his grandchildren Jason, Jordan, Natasha, Tiffany, Allison, Andrea, Angie, Jonas, Ryan and Ashlyn.

A memorial service for Ken will be held at The INN Between, 340 S. Goshen (1040 West), Salt Lake City, UT on Tuesday August 29, 2017 at 11:00 am, followed by complimentary refreshments.
